Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It requires of its members a belief in God as part of the obligation of every responsible adult, but advocates no sectarian faith or practice. Freemasonry is open to men of any faith, but religion may not be discussed at Masonic meetings.
People also ask, where did the Freemasons come from?
The oldest document that makes reference to Masons is the Regius Poem, printed about 1390, which was a copy of an earlier work. In 1717, four lodges in London formed the first Grand Lodge of England, and records from that point on are more complete.
What are the Masons and what do they do?
A Masonic lodge, often termed a private lodge or constituent lodge, is the basic organisational unit of Freemasonry. Every new lodge must be warranted or chartered by a Grand Lodge, but is subject to its direction only in enforcing the published constitution of the jurisdiction.
